Avery Edwin Field Cabin Ruins - West Santa Rosa Drive

The ruins of the Avery Edwin Field Cabin located at the head of West Santa Rosa Drive in the Historic Tennis Club neighborhood are a rare, unique and significant surviving representative from the Early Development of Palm Springs (1884-1918). The Field Cabin is associated with the “Creative Brotherhood,” whose members included artist Carl Eytel, author J. Smeaton Chase, and naturalist Edmund C. Jaeger, figures of influence in the history and development of Palm Springs.

On April 9, 2019 the city's Historic Site Preservation Board voted unanimously (7-0) to recommend to city council approval of the Class 1 Historic Site designation of the Avery Field Cabin. PSPF board member Jan Harper and nomination author Steve Vaught made public comment in support of the nomination.

On November 26, 2018, PSPF submitted the 72-page Class 1 Historic Site nomination for the Avery Edwin Field Cabin Ruins to the city of Palm Springs’ Historic Site Preservation Board.

In July of 2018, the PSPF board of directors assigned the task of writing the Field Cabin’s Class 1 Historic Site nomination to Steve Vaught.
